Golfers visiting The Manor House can combine time on one of Wiltshire’s finest courses with delicious country fare from The Castle Inn, recently named number 37 in Estrella Damm’s Top 50 Gastropubs.

The Castle Inn, located in the ‘prettiest village in the UK’ of Castle Combe, has been praised for its ingenuity and use of traditional gastropub hearty dishes, all made with the very best local ingredients.

Situated in the heart of the village, the 12th-century pub offers 12 unique en-suite bedrooms and a modern take on British cuisine with delicious homemade food and local beverages, while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere which is perfect for groups of golfers.

The Castle Inn provides a comfortable setting for golfers to unwind after a day on the fairways of the stunning Peter Alliss and Clive Clark-designed course. The delightful championship-standard 18-hole layout is immersed in the enchanting surroundings of the Cotswolds, with 365 acres of breathtaking rolling countryside as a backdrop, offering some of the most idyllic scenery which can be seen on an English golf course.

The mature oak and beech trees that line the beautifully manicured fairways, together with the immaculate greens and the River Bybrook meandering through the middle, bring both drama and beauty to the parkland course, which is rightly considered one of the best in the south west.

Jamie Barnett joined The Manor House team as head chef of The Castle Inn in May 2021 and has since added personal touches to the conventional pub meal, while building a brand-new team with a wealth of hospitality experience.

He said: “At The Castle Inn, we are taking a relaxed eating approach and offer something for everyone, which is what makes us so popular among golfers. Our fresh, homemade dishes, coupled with a pint or two of local beer, always go down well with groups visiting The Manor House.

“I’m incredibly proud of my team which continues to go from strength to strength. Each and every one of them deserves to be rewarded with accolades such as this. To get this level of recognition is a testimony to their hard work and creativity, especially after two years of hardship for the hospitality industry.”

Other than the golf course and The Castle Inn, The Manor House’s opulent 14th-century country house hotel sits at the heart of the estate, featuring the Michelin starred Bybrook restaurant, as well as a dedicated gin bar and 50 individually styled rooms and suites, located in the main house and accompanying picturesque rows of cottages.
